“Dirty - Bird House”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We have rented cabins many times, but never experienced the filth and mold that was in this cabin. First the management company, Cabins for You, didn't communicate well and when we got there the cabin's carpet was absolutely filthy! There was also mold and dry wall patch in two of the three bathrooms. If we weren't so tired after driving ten hours, we would have left that evening. However, we survived the night and was able to get moved to another cabin (after many phone calls) for the next couple of days.
In the future, choose your cabin and management company well. I wished I had looked at this site prior to booking Bird House through Cabin for You.

We often go to the Smoky Mountains and have twice stayed with Cobbly Nob. Both times we were very pleased with the quality and condition of our cabins. We have stayed in Bear's Lair - absolutely lovely one bedroom- and ewe also stayed in Simple Bear Necessities- one of our favorites. Gorgeous view (2bedroom).
We have stayed with a couple of other companies on other trips, but will be returning to Cobbly Nob for our next trip. We like them the best.

Everything about this cabin was great except the couch. It had particle board under the cushions instead of springs. What a back breaking. butt numbing experience. Until this couch is replaced avoid this cabin. This is not only my opinion but several previous guests made comments about it in the Guest Book on the coffee table. See the attached picture.
On a positive note, the view is amazing. The large two person shower in the master bedroom is cool also. The master bed was fine, except the mattress cover was worn old and falling apart. The fireplace is for ambience only, as it is too small for the room to provide much heat. The firewood grate is melted down flat so it doesn't allow air flow.
The hottub is average, not really a high quality tub with spa jets.

I have stayed once a month for past several months and have never had any problem. Maybe too good a view or a beautiful sunset. Last week I stayed and was worried about the snow fall. The Cobbly maintenance were right up and salted and cleared the roads. Even winter they are the best. Going again next week and can't wait.

Beautiful cabin... Just not for winter. We got there and the heat was set at 50. The thermostat read 66 by the time we went to bed. Only had 1 blanket in whole cabin and was on the bed. We had to sleep in our flannels, socks and heavy robes. It took until next afternoon to get to 70.

We have stayed with Cobbly Nob Rentals on 5 separate occasions. We wanted to be close to the National Park and the city, but not too close. We have rented in one week stays, 1 to 3 bedrooms, as our family grew. When booking check availability on units and we always ask for a rental map so we can see where the property is located. look at the cabin pictures and the amenities, just a small caution, when looking at several its easy to get confused, so before your final booking review the cabin one last time. We spend most of the day sightseeing after preparing breakfast and return for a late supper. Its gets dark out at 5pm during the winter months, so also think of driving up to your mountain retreat in darkness. In the warmer months you may be interested in the pools, you can always use the nice pool, gym and bowling ally by the High school.
